Abstract

The coppicing ability of some species of Eucalyptus in Chile.

Abstract

The coppicing ability of E. globulus, E. delegatensis, E. nitens, E. regnans and E. viminalis was studied in April 1990, some 14 months after the trees were cut at about 20 yr old. Data are presented on the percentages of stumps coppicing and the number and dimensions of coppice shoots. E. globulus and E. viminalis gave excellent coppicing, and even E. delegatensis and E. nitens coppiced well, despite what has been reported in the literature. Only E. regnans did not coppice well enough to ensure a coppice rotation.
